The finale song is the last musical moment of the wedding so you want to make it count. Every wedding needs an amazing last dance song to end the night, it’s a celebration of a wonderful day and an emotional farewell. The key is choosing a song that everyone knows and one that everyone can sing along too.
Here’s our top 20 finale songs –
#1 I Wanna Dance With Somebody – Whitney Houston
Worth it alone for that introductory ‘whoo’.
#2 (I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life – Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes
You can’t beat lyrics that literally sum up the day (hopefully).
#3 Don’t Stop Believing – Journey
Mercilessly upbeat. Everyone jumping.

A new contender. Hands in the air for that hook.
#5 Let’s Dance – David Bowie
#6 You Sexy Thing – Hot Chocolate
Everyone knows the lyrics.
